Ownership deal for Bradford Bulls on verge of completion

Bradford Bulls’ change of ownership was on the verge of being finalised last night after the London-based consortium fronted by Richard Lamb  had its offer accepted by administrator David Wilson.

The group includes former Bradford player and chief executive Abi Ekoku, who is being lined up as chairman, and is backed by wealthy property developers from the capital.

They were yesterday providing final proof of funds and business plan to the Rugby Football League and it was hoped the deal could be formally announced today or early next week at the latest.

Mr Lamb, owner of Lucid Events, failed in his previous attempt to buy the Bulls out of administration last month.

Leeds-based administrator Mr Wilson instead accepted a bid from Bradford Bulls 2014 Ltd, which comprised of former directors Mark Moore, Andrew Calvert, Ian Watt and chief executive Robbie Hunter-Paul.

After they withdrew their bid, Mr Lamb returned with another offer and the consortium this week emerged as the preferred bidder after beating off competition from Mandy Koukash and representatives from Bradford City and Bradford Park Avenue.

Decision early next week. Heard this before!!!
Don't think its worrying they are property developers. Get a new stand build across the Rooley Lane End and include new bar, club shop, private office space or gym open to the public. The only way odsal will be improved is with outside use of the stadium 365 days a year. Have a look at Hull KR's new stand this weekend. Thats the model we need to follow.

Talking of Hull KR. If we play well(cut out mistakes) we are more than capable of getting the points on sunday. They have played well against some good teams, but don't think we've played anything like our best yet. Sunday is the game we need the players to be on top form. Lets get the behind the team in numbers COYB

Yes indeed.

Ask yourself how any business man can be interested in anything that doesn't make money ?

Now ask yourself how much the land is worth should any owner be able to get it back.
I know what it's worth as it's already been valued recently ;-)

Come on you guys. Give it a chance?
As soon as we hear property developers some of you assume that it's a bid for a retail park, or houses to be built etc. etc.
If it had have been MK would we be saying" mark my words Horses will soon be grazing on the pitch, with stables in the Coral Stand."

Isn't there anything that you can't find a negative spin on?
with apologies to those who now look to the positivity coming out of this awful situation we have faced over these last two years.

So don't get to excited and start doing the 'told you so' dance. I still feel Lamb had the clubs best interests at heart.

What difference does it make if they are property developers? As far as I am aware the land I owned by the council, not the Bulls, and the lease s owned by the RFL. Also, a condition of the lease is that the Bulls have to play out of Odsal or pay the council a hefty (7 figures I believe) sum of cash. Any new buyers are buying the club and the infrastructure, not the land.

Good news. New eyes on the job, new perspectives, new money, ne viion. They will likely see the 'brand' and the potential, both for the Bulls, the city and for development. We might have to say 'goodbye' to the Wembley of the North', but if it works, we so be it.
Let me think, .....the RFL needs the lease off its hands, the council needs its money back and we have a multiple acre plot of land smack bang in the middle of the country, in the middle of the 3rd biggest conurbation, with some of he the highest traffic rates in Europe and (its gets better)... on the busiest freight carrying motorway. Well, what a wonderful spot for a HS2 freight centre and industrial park.

If we are thinking about rugby, we can play anywhere within reason. Yes we love Odsal, (I've be going for 40 years from the age of 7) but it's bloody cold and wet on occasion. Would we not be be better playing on a purpose build 25/30K stadium somewhere else on that side of town (down the 606?) and for the benefit of the city, jobs and our future, develop the land into something special, an international hub.

As for the rugby side of things; better to have an owner from elsewhere with vision, money and a pot to put it in than locals with little of either and no pot to put in (as the saying goes.).

Lets hope for the best. But let's wait for the announcement.
LONG LIVE THE BULLS.

I agree, odsal is too big and could be used for something else, back to landfill. Let's think smaller and more modern. A friend of mine (not Nigel Wood) suggested developing horsfall stadium.

Should. Your crank of a post falls down with the word 'should'. Before you get into fantasy tales of valuations of land or big housing estates blah de blah. The first thing ANY business man would do is have GUARANTEES. No businessman would take on a super league club, pay of some creditors (if Marc Green aint got it we are talking 250k + minimum), pay thousands in legal bills and waste a hell of a lot of time on teh off chance that in 10 years time he may get the land. Not one businessman in the land. Ever. We deal in factas and figures. Not hopes and dreams. If a businessman wants to take a punt, he invests in a stocks portfolio. He doesn't buy the Bulls.

I don't think we need worry about developers taking Odsal in this context. Why go through the potentially long and difficult route of acquiring the land over time, propping up an ailing club/business sufficiently long enough to gain the RFL's trust and buy back the lease and then acquire the land from the council? There are too many ifs and buts before the endgame to make it viable for any competent developer. Besides wouldn't it be easier just to acquire a brown field site somewhere in the area?

We know that Lamb was involved in the RL World Cup on the marketing side and is a keen new convert to the game and we know about Ekoku's RL credentials. So the personal interest seems to be there and I believe that the RFL genuinely wants the Bulls to survive (hence the lease purchase) and so there are a number of safeguards of sorts whilst the club lives and breathes. Let's get behind them I say!

Is that clear enough ..please contact Mr Steve Ree's Prospective Speedway & Stock Car Promoter... who you will find very willing to discuss this. At the last count there was about 300000 people in Bradford. Right now it cannot be justfied that Odsal Stadium is an amenity frequented by just 5000-6000 Rugby fans. More of us would support Odsal so Mr Lamb I wish you well but you have to be willing to engage with Bradfords wider sporting public.

At the last count there was about 300000 people in Bradford. Right now it cannot be justfied that Odsal Stadium is an amenity frequented by just 5000-6000 Rugby fans. More of us would support Odsal so Mr Lamb I wish you well but you have to be willing to engage with Bradfords wider sporting public.

The Outsider, please remain that. What a pathetic approach, but hasn't the chap who wanted speedway gone elsewhere, so a pointless tirade on your part.
The safety fencing was removed with the knowledge of the RFL, leaseholders and the Council, owners, enough said.
As to the £200k Council loan, I suggest you approach the Council itself, see who the loan was actually given too, then ask them for it back. Oh, whilst we're on about Council loans, do you think it would be prudent to ask for those back given to other companies, Charities, Clubs etc, that we know nothing about. We wouldn't have known about this one at Odsal, if it hadn't been for a disgruntled Lib Dem councillor upset that HER favourites didn't get a loan. Loans are made by most councils most days, to help business in their cities.

Why are people so quick to point out they are property developers. Exiled puts it bluntly. The council owns the land and there is a clause in the agreement about the Bulls.

Just look at such as Wigan, Wire and Widnes – possibly even a few others. Their grounds were bought and they had a new stadium built. Would people complain if that happened.

Odsal is supposed to be worth about £60 million as a tip and then the development about a decade after that on top. I wouldn’t complain if Odsal was developed and let’s say us and Park avenue got a nice 20k seat ground built. I have being going up there for about 40 years and it is still a dump and a mill stone around our necks. 14 games a year to pay for that hole in the ground. What a massive burden.
Sell it, fill it in and spend half of what the council gets on a new small, modern stadium. See if grants etc are available also. How about that for an idea? We are not all worried about developers eyeing up our costly hole in the ground which leaves us skint.

There is no reason why the stadium can't have Speedway and Stock cars back. The council need to utilise the facility and stop wasting council tax payers money on a minority sport like rugby league.

It wouldn't matter to some posters on here if Prince Charles bought the club with 10 million quid in a brown paper bag! They would still complain and see pitfalls. It's the club which is being taken over, with it's potential and it's brand, which once was the envy of all in Super League. Any buyer will not be looking at failure, rather the realisation of that potential. The ground is leasehold, they will know that, but it will be inconceivable that any new owner will cast the Bulls aside in order to get the lease, there are easier ways to do that. Let's hope the patience shown by Richard Lamb in his efforts to gain control of the Bulls will be rewarded. He has a proven track record in business and a steady hand at the helm is what we need.

Close runner up in pathetic posts is... Papa Smurf with his wig. Mentions Rugby League in Bradford as a minority sport, has obviously been campaigning with the other idiot, Outsider, for the past couple of decades for the return of main stream popular sports like Speedway/Stocks.


Anyway, back to Bradford’s ‘minority’ sport, here on its minority T&A column, I was surprised to discover how successful our potential new Chairman has become over the years, contrary to what other ‘ill informed’ souls have suggested. Let’s hope that Mr Lambs bid is now ratified by the RFL and of course TVOR and Andy2010 et al, so we can all get back to supporting our minority sport.

In my opinion, a consortium of property developers could work out very well for the Odsal area, it's links with the motorway make it a prime site for redevelopment not just for housing.

If they have any plans on such, they could easily build within it's grounds, a new stadium (sorry no speedway), hotel, music/leisure facilities etc.

They also may have an interest in the land across the road as the white elephant that is Richard Dunn's is not going to be around forever.

Good luck to the bulls form a bantam, if this bid wins, give them a chance.

I would think that the bulls do over £200k or voluntary community work every year anyway, so the tax payer is getting pretty good value.

Do speedway or stock car clubs do the same sort of community work? the stock car races I've ever knows (all farmers for some reason) couldn't give a flying F about the community!

Do speedway or stock car clubs do the same sort of community work? the stock car races I've ever knows (all farmers for some reason) couldn't give a flying F about the community!
You are right about the foundation and community work, I should imagine the council get good value just from the work they do in all primary schools in Bradford, you have only to see 100 plus young cheerleaders on the pitch to realise what a tremendous job is being done for all the kids of the community, who will be a lot fitter than the couch potatoes who sit at their laptops, and spout about how awful it is that the council invest in the future of our kids.

Plain dumb eh....oh the irony

Care to disprove what I posted about Lucid ?

Thought not because you cant. Like others on here your so stupid you believe any owner of the Bulls is better than no-one but in reality do not understand each and every one of the past 3 owners have screwed the club and its assets into the ground.

I have been a season ticket holder now for over 25 years and sure as others will also do wish the best for my club but to blindly follow anyone willing to buy it is plain stupid.

I would suggest you take a step back and look at the bigger picture. I read these forums daily and rarely comment but all it seems to be is a group of what I can only describe as immature buffoons like yourself harassing anyone who even mentions anything bad or even has a question about the ownership of the Bulls.

I remember when Khan and then Moore were hailed as saviors by the likes of yourself and you ilk and people like TVOR were just being sceptical. Well he/she was proved right and you are so blind you cannot even see it with Lamb.

Anyway rest assured I will go back to just viewing these forums as cant be bothered with immature retards such as yourself.

Let me state though give it six months and Lamb will be seen in a totally different light by yourself. You will of course then conventionality forget you applauded his appointment.

I would also suggest you lay of attacking other posters like TVOR who whilst might sometimes go the wrong way about does actually speak some sense when it comes to these things.

BCFC,
That is probably why it is taking so long to sort out.I would have thought that the business plan would have already been prepared and accepted by both the Administrator and the RFL before they discounted the other bids.Seems to me we maybe "jumping the gun" thinking that Mr.Lamb is a done deal.If it was surely it would have been announced by now.I to,have been told exactly what you have,beware what you wish for.

I haven't bothered posting on here for a while because I'm heartily sick and tired of the continuing shambles to which you refer.

A lot of fans got excited about Mandy. Negotiations conducted via the press and "90% certain of success". Soaking up the publicity on Sunday but it all led to the inevitable conclusion of those who "talk the talk" .

I wasn't aware Lucid Events had four CCJ's registered against them last year. If so, then it appears this fiasco will run and run.

Very good, lots of words most spelt correctly but not necessarily in the right order.
Much improved by way of articulation of your recent offering of “HAHAHAHA OWNED!!! contribution yesterday. I really enjoyed that one.

You ask “Care to disprove what I posted about Lucid?” No. For what reason, you’ve discovered the Companies House website and paid your quid – what’s your point? CCJ’s are open to understanding and interpretation. Now I’m guessing you are a Consultant with KMPG or PricewaterhouseCoope
rs, maybe Deloitte, because you obviously have great financial understanding of complex financial issues, particularly regarding affairs of the Bulls.
You comment “I read these forums daily and rarely comment but all it seems to be is a group of what I can only describe as immature buffoons like yourself harassing anyone who even mentions anything bad or even has a question about the ownership of the Bulls.” For that we are all thankful, keep up the good work sunshine, followed by “Anyway rest assured I will go back to just viewing these forums as cant be bothered with immature retards such as yourself.” What wise words!
So, we have ‘immature buffoons’ and ‘immature retards’ –wow! You’re the man! Step out from behind your keyboard, I’ll make you smile, in fact, I’ll have you in stitches, from head to toe ;-)
One other point, you say “You will of course then conventionality forget you applauded his appointment.” Shouldn’t that be in the plural, or are you singling me out solely? Is your brain hurting? Have you got one?
All in all, not a bad effort but stick to reading.

But when we go on about investment from Lamb, we are talking HIS cash not company cash. Companies usually only tip up money for SPONSORSHIP, see Man U deal with AON or Bulls with provident.

Close runner up in pathetic posts is... Papa Smurf with his wig. Mentions Rugby League in Bradford as a minority sport, has obviously been campaigning with the other idiot, Outsider, for the past couple of decades for the return of main stream popular sports like Speedway/Stocks.


Anyway, back to Bradford’s ‘minority’ sport, here on its minority T&A column, I was surprised to discover how successful our potential new Chairman has become over the years, contrary to what other ‘ill informed’ souls have suggested. Let’s hope that Mr Lambs bid is now ratified by the RFL and of course TVOR and Andy2010 et al, so we can all get back to supporting our minority sport.
SMTM, anyone?
Bit of a mouth piece Sheffield Dull. Look get this and get it straight if Speedway and Stock Cars cannot help the future of Odsal Stadium then it is time for us all to pack up. 14 Rugby League games (or whatever) cannot sustain the venue and if you think it can then your the IDIOT here. How many of you follow the Rugby - 5000? that's a minority sport Dull boy.

How about you try following your minority sport closer to home ...try the Eagles who seem to think its not a bad idea to work alongside the Sheffield Tigers speedway club at Owlerton.
